    Have you thought about having (a) favourite team(s)?
    Basketball is unique in a sense that it's a team sport, but a superstar can literally take over a game which is why there's more emphasis on favourite players.
    Well back in the day I used to use phoenix suns in NBA live. If anything I'd say they're my favourite team.

    Do they show basketball on sky btw?

    Ahhh with Charles Barkley in the 90s or Steve Nash in the late 00s?

    I think they do occasionally, could be wrong.

    Yeah I liked both. Steve Nash especially. Shame that Phoenix have never won a championship despite getting to the finals twice.

    They used to show playoffs round 2010 on channel 5. I think it was around the time Kobe and Lebron started going HAM. Also they showed the all star weekend and Nate Robinson jumped over Dwight Howard to dunk and Howard did a 10 ft dunk :moon:

    Perhaps Kobe should retire? Injury after injury now at his advanced age.

    Who is watching the all star game?

    Think Christina Aguilera would have done better on the star spangled banner. Needed more verve in it, was too soft from queen latifa tbh.

    Can't wait for the game.

    Yeah he did.

    Looks like Lebron is gonna beat Kobe's record looking at it. This is the highest scoring all star game in history right?

    Totally blindsided by these trades!! KG back in Minnesota isn't too big a surprise but shocked that the Suns got rid of Thomas as well as Tragic, damn.....hope Bledsoe will be able to mesh well with his new teammates. I know a lot of people hate him but I hate that Perkins is now with the Jazz, maybe not the best player but I love him too much to see him on a nobody team like the Jazz

      It was inevitable I guess. I never really got to see Rose at his best and it looks like I never will. At least I saw one of his few 30 point games against Lillard a few months back.

      They said that they warned him that the miniscus has a strong likelihood to tear again after op and this tear isn't as bad as the last time, so there's a possibility we could see him return later on this season
